it to bill clinton for eight years. bill clinton was smart enough crafty enough to find a way to rise above and beat us at every turn. he did it by continuing to reach out. i always say when i was a lawyer, i had pictures after congress, all these pictures of bill clinton with much appreciation. it would drive my law partners crazy. appreciation for what? you impeached him. i said yeah, those were the days. you got to reach out. >> here's a question i don't think any of us can answer. only the president can answer. can he utilize the power, the threat of power of the presidency the way lyndon johnson did with regard to resolutions during the course of the vietnam war? one senator voting against him, not being with him. frank church had voted against the vietnam war. lyndon johnson says the next time you want to damnen your district call frank church. can barack obama utilize the inherent power of that office? >> if he has personal relationships -- lyndon johnson had remarkable relationships. they knew when lyndon called lyndon meant business. the president needs to
? >> here's the real problem with this. back in the '90s when the clinton administration had a so-called assault weapons ban, that also included a ban on high-capacity magazines and none of it did any good, had any impact. there are a couple of reasons for that. in terms of the magazines, these things, millions of them out there, they are very inexpensive and you get in this sort of bidding match. they say, well we shouldn't have a 30-round magazine or a 20-round, the president says let's have a ten. the governor of new york says, well, i can top that, we will have a 7-round magazine this is -- all sort of makes you feel good but, in fact, it doesn't do much. now, if you are out there and if you're crazy and if you've got a gun like this and if you're gonna shoot people with it, it takes a second or so to change the magazines. >> before i let you go, i have to ask you about an ad the nra put on a website yesterday. it mentions the president's daughters. it calls the president an elitist hypocrite because he is skeptical about posting armed guards in schools, yet his own girls do h
have been getting conflicting reports about how many survived. secretary of state hillary clinton says that she has been keeping in touch with the algerian prime minister since the crisis first started yesterday. our counter terrorism experts have been in close contact with their algerian counterparts throughout the last days. and we have also in close consultation with partners around the world sharing information. >> the military operation is over and four hostage are dead. two from the u.k., two from the philippines. but the militants claim dozens of hostage are dead. jennifer griffin live at the pentagon tonight. jennifer, let's start first with the americans. what do we know? >> well, bill, the standoff we know is over. and the first bp chartered flight out of algeria is expected to land within an hour in london. there has been confusion over the numbers. we understand that there were not more than three americans held during the hostage crisis fox news has learned two american survivors are on their way to london right now. several flights out of algeria for employees. some narro
. we don't know who it is. the designated survivor, just in case the unimaginable happens. bill clinton, jimmy carter, no bushes, however. george h.w. bush recuperating from illness and george w. bush had to send his regrets. look at the blue carpet. yesterday they had vacuums in here cleaning up and the glass you can see right there, just minutes, wiping it clean to make everything look absolutely perfect for the ceremonies again. the president will take the oath for the second time in two days at 11:30 this morning. soledad. >> john berman, thank you. let's get to john king. hey, john. >> soledad, hello to you. i don't think it's so chilly. i'm with you on the weather front. a beautiful spring day in washington. let's get to the team joining us on beach day in washington. we have the former obama deputy press secretary, margaret hoover, and brian liza for "the new yorker" and ron brownstein from "the national journal." we're going to head straight up to john borrasso, a conservative, and let's start with this morning. a new beginning for the president. is this a new beginning for the
clinton and carter. we will not see both presidents bush. the elder, as you know, is still ill. he's recovering. and the younger sends his regrets. what's remarkable about this day is how carefully choreographed it is. the minute that michelle walks out the front door with the red curtain around it what time the dignitaries walk out, what time the president himself walks out. and at 11:55 on the dot he gets sworn in by chief justice john roberts. he'll be using two bibles today. that's not unprecedented. three presidents in the past have done the same. the first belonged to president lincoln. he used it in his swearing-in in 1861. and the second belonged to martin luther king jr. it was his traveling bible and it's fitting because today is martin luther king day. after the swearing-in, the president and the first lady family and friends, congressional leaders all head in to statuary hall for lunch. this is a tradition that dates back to 1889. they'll dine on bison and good old-fashioned apple pie. >> we go to chief correspondent and host of "face the nation" bo
once -- the court struck down clinton for trying this, and i'm afraid president obama may have this king complex. >> what do you make of what he's saying? 23 executive actions, some you think would be targets for being struck down by a court? >>> there's the completely anti government wing that will make that argument. i guess they made it against president bush 41 when he banned the importation of certain kind of assault weapons and made it against executive order signed by president clinton. presidents have the power to do executive orders. that's a power deferred to the president by congress and the constitution. there are those -- as rand paul says, he wants to nullify. that's code word. >> for what? >> nullification, look when it's been used. it's kind of a state's rights argument that gets used in times of great controversy. but the president is acting by executive power, legally conf conferred on him these executive orders are basically common-sense things, basically geared around sharing information, sharing information to reduce gun violence. >> null if i is a code wor
? >> it was more about the individual popularity of the one barack obama plus bill clinton. after all, it was a decisive victory, but it was a victory for the man, not necessarily the party. >> is that how you read it, john? do you see this being an obama victory as opposed to a liberal victory are or they intertwined? >> i never want to disagree too much with one of the greater politicians in american history, but i would suggest that there was a little more party there. you won a couple u.s. senate seats that they weren't supposed to win sometimes because of republican flubs. 1.4 million more people voted for democrats for the house than voted for republicans, only gerrymandering kept the house where it is. and so i think that this man has done a lot to build a broad progressive coalition, but your core question is the important one. can you hold that coalition together? >> mayor -- >> let me say this to you though, i believe that it would have been a more telling benefit for the party if it had been nancy pelosi re-emerging as the speaker of the house and if democrat governors had
violent video games. after columbine, there was a big part of clinton's response. a lot of households were on a tablet. the way it fews our culture is very difficult. >> people argue about it and they don't keep their kids from playing the games. >> we don't have enough data. we are not allowed to keep data on guns and not able to look at how guns may overlap with violence and culture. we are just not allowed to do it. partly because they have pushed hard to make sure we cannot keep data on guns. if this were a public issue, we are able to keep track of how transmission is without names. without people's names. without identifying. we are able to keep track of how many so we can target messing and intervention and things like that. we need it do the same with guns. >> that is apparently in from the president now. with vice president biden making his recommendations at handling that. we will talk more about that ahead as well. there is a lot of questions about the president and theus of executive order. can't create new gun laws. he can strengthen the gun laws. we will talk more specificall
leaving the gas plant. secretary of state hillary clinton said this. this incident will be resolved. we hope with a minimum loss of life. but when you deal with these relentless terrorists, life is not in any way precious to them. matthew chance is joining us from london with the latest details. matthew, reports that the algerian military attempted to rescue hostages late thursday night, they are saying the raid was over, britain is saying the crisis continues. what happened? where do we stand right now? >> it all sorts of feeds into the sense of confusion that there is surrounding this whole incident and surrounding the decision by the algerians to go in, try to rescue the hostages and end the situation without consulting the white house or any other leaders of countries involved here in britain. perhaps as many as 20 british nationals taken hostage. that figure is yet to be confirmed. and david cameron, the british prime minister appeared on british television, visibly angry that he was not consulted before the alli iegerian operat went ahead. and he took the opportunity on national m
after the top of the hour. we finally know when secretary of state hillary clinton will testify about the terrorist act in benghazi, lib. january 23. she was scheduled to testify last month before she got sick and suffered a concussion. >>> former president george h.w. bush waking up in his own bed this morning. he spent more than two months in the hospital for a bronchitis-related cough. the president says he wishes he could personally thank everyone who sent so many get-well messages. >>steve: what do these four u.s. presidents have in common? anyone with a knowledge of history probably remembers they were all assassinated while in office. what you didn't know is the connection between each of their killers. turns out they've all got something in common. brad meltzer figured it out, the author of "the fifth assassin." good morning. you're at this book signing. a guy comes up to you and says what? >> he says i work in a museum in washington, d.c. and you've got to see what we have. i said what do you have there? he said we have pieces of abraham lincoln's skull, the bones of john wil
